Chicken Head In Happy Meal
This is a story of a mother, who went to a MacDonald’s with her two kids and ordered Happy meals.While they were eating the 6-year old was more interested in the slide across the street then in the chicken nuggets which he didn’t even touch.So the mother decided she would eat them.
Without actually watching what she was doing she was bringing a chicken biggest to her mouth, just when her 8-year old son yelled not to eat it.So she looked at the biggest to find that — despite the crust, it looked just like a chicken’s head.Nobody knew how it got there.The manager offered them their meal for free and two more weeks of free meals.The mother pressed charges and demanded 100,000 dollars compensation.
